A loan of $375 helped to build a wall at the back of his home.

Claudio's story

Claudio is a young man, 22 years old. He lives in the city of Imperial, which is known for its variable climate and for its agriculture, especially the cultivation of apples, yellow corn, and plantains, among other crops. Claudio is a young man with a great desire to make progress. His family has few economic resources, and because of this he was only able to study up to the fifth year of secondary school, but he would have liked to study for a degree in Computing and Information Technology.

Each day, Claudio works as a laborer on a farm, since with the earnings from his work he can help with the household expenses. Claudio works approximately 8 hours a day, but in the harvest season he works about 10 hours. Claudio believes that he is getting ahead because he is responsible with his work.

Claudio is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help provided to him, he will be able to build an adobe wall at the back of his humble home, where the current wall is only made of cane. In this way, he will be able to provide better security for his family and prevent burglaries. Thus he will be able to keep working to make his greatest dream a reality: "to finish his studies and continue supporting his family."
